NVlink not working RTX 3090 / Ubuntu 16.04

I have a system with 3 RTX 3090s running Ubuntu 16.04.
I installed a 4-slot NVLink bridge for RTX 3090 between two of them. However, the system seems not to recognize the link.

Here are the outputs of nvidia-smi:

Is there any setup required after I installed the bridge ? Please let me know if you have any suggestion.

Thanks.

Here is the bug report file:

Either the bridge is not seated correctly or it doesn’t work with your gpu model. NVLink on 3090s has been a nuisance before:

The suggestion will be highly appreciated
